Cafe 501 is a nice restaurant with a good selection of foods with some southwestern twists to a lot of the dishes. The food is really good. This is definitely a more expensive restaurant that I wouldn't recommend young children.

Lots of great options to choose from. I had the skillet and looooved the green chili queso on it. A little pricey, especially for counter service.

I remember when 501 Cafe was among the very few nicer places to eat a good lunch in Edmond. It's great to see it still growing strong for both lunch and dinner, and that it has maintained it's incredible, delicious menu, attention to detail and great service. It is still a great date place or a good place for a... More

It was very busy when we went on a weekday at lunchtime. Service was as friendly as a mob scene would allow. It was noisy, busy, and getting our lunch took a while, but it was ok, as we weren't in a rush. If in the neighborhood, I would go again, but it isn't worth a trip out of the... More

501 is our place! We love it! Great service and a variety in the menu! We always go to 501 for our family dinners/birthdays and our anniversary! Our kids are older and they love it! Brunch and lunch are fun too!

This is the classy place in town to go and have an elegant brunch or lunch with friends, co-workers, clients or family. I love to give gift certificates to my clients to come here. The food is fresh and delicious. Dinner dates are wonderful here as well. I prefer the brunch or lunch menu.

I usually drive into the city for brunch but a friend recommended Cafe 501 so I thought we'd give it a try! It was everything brunch should be - quick service, good drink menu, delicious mimosas and great food. The server wasn't overly personable but she didn't need to be - she got us everything we needed and was very... More

The line is extensive for this Edmond landmark - but if you call ahead you can usually make a reservation same day and they will whisk you right in for brunch. Everything is great. Very good brewed coffee and juice. The eggs Benedict is always good and they have a crab cake Benedict that my wife loves.
